Falls Church Calendar: January 7 – 13, 2021

LOCAL EVENTS

SATURDAY, JANUARY 9

Scavenger Hunt for a Cure. Providence Players of Fairfax will work with Young Hearts Foundation to support local pediatric cancer patients and the search for cures for an 11th year in a row. However, while the Covid-19 pandemic is preventing the theater group and foundation from co-producing its usual holiday production to generate funds, it will instead hold a Scavenger Hunt for a Cure. During the scavenger hunt, teams of up to three will take photographs of a team member with each item and email the photos to YHHuntForACure@gmail.com during the 90 minute time-limit. There’s a $50 fee for each team’s registration. For more information about how to register, the scavenger hunt’s rules and more, visit here. 1 – 2:30 p.m.
